Are all 3 switches going to be in the same box? If so then you can pigtaill all the hots and run a hot to each switch. Wire nut all your neturals. Connect all your grounds. Run your switch legs and you should be fine. T-8's do not pull much power. Is the exsiting circuit protected by a 15 or 20 amp breaker?. If it is a 15 amp breaker, then you can use 14 gauge wire.
